Neighborhoods at Risk
Convenient, free access to socioeconomic and climate data can help communities visualize potential problems and make informed decisions to adapt to long-term climate change.
Neighborhoods at Risk is designed to meet community planning needs to protect people and property from the impacts of climate change. This free, web-based tool generates customized, interactive maps and reports that describe characteristics of potentially vulnerable neighborhoods (by census tract). Additionally, Neighborhoods at Risk provides community-level climate projections for temperature and precipitation.
Neighborhoods at Risk reports are based on data from the U.S. Census Bureau, FEMA, Multi-Resolution Land Characteristics Consortium, First Street Foundation, and the Northeast Regional Climate Center’s Applied Climate Information System.
